Harry Potter is due to start his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizadry. He is desperate to get back to school and find out why his friends Ron and Hermione have been so secretive all summer. However, what Harry is about to discover in his new year at Hogwarts will turn his whole world upside down …But before he even gets to school, Harry has an unexpected and frightening encounter with two Dementors, has to face a court hearing at the Ministry of Magic and has been escorted on a night-time broomstick ride to the secret headquarters of a mysterious group called ‘The Order of the Phoenix’. And that is just the start.
Wow, this book was such a gripping read! I literally devoured it and didn’t want to put it down. It was probably the most difficult of all the books to read because some of the characters introduced don’t treat Harry and his friends well. The storyline with Professor Umbridge was a tough read because she was so cruel. I’m mad to finish them in one way so I can see how the characters’ stories finish but at the same time I don’t want them to end!
